    Death and destruction
    the result of a day of chaos
    buildings destroyed
    war torn landscape
    bodies become jigsaw puzzles
    life can never be the same
    eyes full of tears
    for those found and yet to be found
    retribution for despicable acts
    is on the horizon
    yet this can never be undone
    the images can never be erased
    as one emerges
    amidst the turmoil
    whose poetic words
    fortold of dark days
    exposing the problematic decays
    of the system
    he stands
    as tall
    as Lady Liberty herself
    proclaiming
    his gospel of the streets
    that can never be silenced
    in the shadows
    of what once
    were the twin Guardians
    of a great city
    A So'Ja Stands


    Be encouraged my brotha...you have the prayers of the entire family.

    THANKS

    so much it means alot
    yes i'm at GROUND ZERO
    no subway gonna hafta walk to Brooklyn
    again like tuesday

    man you didn't have to do this
    but it shows the love
    i haven't told anybody but a family member is missing for tuesday
    who works in the area of WTC
    so it has really hit home

    people don't know how to communicate with each other
    that's why stuff like this happens
    and the U.S. is trying to show they're the good guys but black people and americans indians may have difference of opinion

    i sit at ground zero if you or anybody wants to hear it from Da Streets
    let me know

    Bishop - your concern is heartfelt man
    and i have such appreciation for one of the real original
    O.G.'s


    Peace until i write- DAY 3 of the AFTERMATH- The 7 Signs of Da Apocalypse
